Provider facility background
Lindy Vanlandingham, MD

Lindy Vanlandingham, MD

Obstetrics and Gynecology
When Dr. Vanlandingham's family relocated to Colorado during her childhood, it was the beginning of a lifelong relationship with this state. She grew up in Colorado Springs until relocating to Boulder for college. There, she attended the University of Colorado at Boulder and earned an undergraduate degree in International Affairs and Russian language. Though it seems a far cry from medicine, it was through the course of those four years that she made a transition from interest in diplomacy and policy to interest in how policy affects an individual. She concluded that the best place for her to use her skills was at the bedside, one-on-one, with patients. After several years of taking classes while working and volunteering, She began medical school at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and ultimately found a calling as a provider for women.

During her residency, Dr. Vanlandingham stood out as a natural educator, achieving numerous accolades for medical student education. She remains active in the University of Colorado's humanities curriculum for medical students and looks forward to continuing a life of clinical education with medical students and residents. She applies many of the same educational philosophies to her patient care, including open and clear communication, approachability, and joint decision making. She considers these the cornerstones of a trusting relationship with women and their families.

When not at work, Dr. Vanlandingham enjoys running, yoga, hiking, skiing, healthy cooking, and nurturing relationships with friends and family. She is a voracious reader and devotes much of her free time to catching up on short stories and novels.

Care Philosophy

My approach to healing has always been to listen, educate and provide personalized care that meets the patient's specific needs.
